FORUM CONTRIBUTION: Ten years of the CCM: An assessment for labour

Volume: Special Issue 2007

Article type: Forum contribution

Author/s: Bernikow, Ronald

Ronald Bernikow examines certain key areas of the CCMA's operations and the challenges it faces within the broader context of our labour laws. The article deals with the current state of CCMA service delivery as well as the debate over what has been termed the 'over-proceduralisation' of dispute resolution at the CCMA.

It discusses areas where the CCMA can, from the perspective of labour, be said to be performing well, as well as pointing to various shortcomings or gaps in the statutory dispute resolution framework. It concludes that the CCMA is a legitimate and important institution that has promoted a common industrial citizenship and provided a platform for confronting future challenges.
